Ricky walked in his father’s shadow; they were always together.

He was very proud of his heritage, he so enjoyed the opportunity to travel to Cuba with his father before he died in 2010.

He loved spending time with his family, especially his nieces and nephews, and girlfriend Kayla. He enjoyed family barbeques, and was very proud of being a Godfather.

Working on cars, shopping and listening to music were his favorite pastimes.

Ricky is survived by his mother Lucina Hernandez of Albert Lea; his siblings: Irene (Dante) Lopez of Albert Lea, Gabriela Peralta of Albert Lea and Jennifer Hernandez of Albert Lea; stepsister Yudysley Hernandez of Italy; his grandmother Irene Hernandez of Cuba; nieces and nephews: Jazmin, Dante, Diego, Jessenia, Janessa, Miquel, YonCarlos, Lilliana and Josefina; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father and grandparents.

Enrique “Ricky” will be remembered as always having a smile on his face. We have you in our hearts, Ricky!
